PREFACE. 



1 HE ancient Muniments of the Abbacy of Melros have been for a long time 
preserved in the archives of the Earls of Morton. Like the title-deeds of other 
Church property, they seem to have come into the hands of the Crown at the 
general annexation of Church lands in 1560 ". 

When the Abbacy was granted to James Douglas * in 1568, it is probable 
that the title-deeds were transferred to him ; and it would appear, that on his 
complete resignation of that benefice in 1608, the more ancient investitures were 
not given up to the Crown. Whether they passed along with the lands, in virtue 
of the Commendator's first resignation in 1604, (N. 610,) in favour of his father, 
or, having remained with James Douglas, camc uitimately with his other posses- 
sions to the noble family of Morton, on the faiku-e of his descendants, cannot 
now perhaps be ascertained. 



a Among theMortouii papers is the following 
" Memorandum : — In this kyst the hale eui-

XJpon each charter of the collection, and on 
each leaf of the more ancient chartulary, is the 
name 7{. Scott, the autograph subscription aji- 
parently of Robert Scott, the first of that nanie 
who held the office of Director of theChancery 



of Scotland. The usual form of that subscrip- 
tion is represented in a fac-siniile of the older 
chartidary prefixed to the present work. But 
upon every tenth leaf of the older chartnlary, 
he signs in this more elaborate fashion : 




h He was the sccond son of William Douglas 
of Lochleven, alterwards sixth Earl of Jlor- 



These important charters, although they have not escaped the notice of some of 
our more diligent antiquaries ", had fallen almost into obhvion, and only a tradi- 
tion remained, that they " were preserved, until a recent period, in the archives 
" of the Earls of Morton ''." When examined for the purpose of the present 
publication, they were found to be contained in twenty-six linen bags, and 
appeared not to have been disturbed since the middle of the last century. The 
charters are generally in fine preservation ; and numerous seals are preserved, 
many of which have, at early periods, been carefully protected by little bags of 
linen still fitting closely round each seal. 

These muniments, before the dissolution of the monastery, had already formed 
the subject of two compilations or chartularies. The more ancieiit, as it 
now exists, is very imperfect. It is preserved in the library of the Faculty of 
Advocates at Edinburgh «, and consists of 44! leaves of vellum, of a small 
(juarto size, not always in proper order. It contains charters from the restoration 
of the Abbey by King David I., down to the reign of Alexander III., written 
uniformly and at the same time, if not by one hand ; and its execution may be 
safely ascribed to the end of the latter reign, or to the period of confusion whicli 
immediately followed it. 

The other and more complete register of the title-deeds of Melros is in the 
British Museum/. It is described as " a handsome folio of 119 leaves, well 
" written on parchment, and in good preservation.'" It is of much later date, 
and records occasional cliarters, even so low down as the reign of James IV. 

Neither of these chartularies contains nearly the whole of the original charters 
liere printed, although they present some of which the originals are not now 
preserved. But it is not in omitting charters only that they are wanting in the 
interest of the originals. They scarcely ever give the witnesses, or the date.'^ 
where these occur at the end ; and, of course, they always want the interesting- 
and often important authentication of the seal.

e They appear to have been examined, and was in the hands of the Earl of Haddington. 

rouglily inventoried, by the indefatigable Mac- Scoi. Hist. Libr. 
farlaiie. 



The present work embraces the whole of these materials. The original tiiar- 
ters have always been adhered to where extant ; and where recourse was had to 
the chartularies, thc older was preferred, unless the Harleian copy afforded 
a manifestly better rcadingff. 

The arrangemcnt of these materiais was attended with some difficulty. Even 
after a positive or conjectural datc and locality had been assigned to each, it did 
not seem expedient either to adopt the order of time, and thus sacrifice all con- 
nexion of subject, nor, on the other hand, to adhere to the usual arrangement 
of title-deeds, with reference to the lands only, by which method charters might 
have stood together, differing some centuries in date. A mixed plan has been 
adopted. The charters, after being disposed under the different King^s reigns to 
which they seem to belong — and no nearer approximation can often be made to 
their dates — have afterwards been arranged in reference to the various lands 
which form their subjects. Whether this arrangement shall be considered judi- 
cious or not, it is hopcd that tlie full table of contents, exhibiting the heads of 
the classification, with an accurate index, will afFord as great facility of consulta- 
tion as can be required in a work of this nature. The topographical heads, 
which could not be made accurate or uniform over such an extent of time, during 
which new jurisdictions were continually varying and adding to the nomenclature 
of the country, have been fixed jjcrhaps too arbitrarily. This does not seem of 
much consequence, since the only object was to collect in the same series the writs 
of lands lying in the same district ^. 

It is proper here to notice certain minor details of tlie compilation. It mav 
be expected that some defence shall be given for printing these charters 
with the abbreviations which obscure the originals. If, by any mode of print- 
ing, the work could have been rendered popular, there might be more room for 
difFerence of opinion on this matter. But the subject is one necessarily requiring 
a certain measure of preparatory learning; and the trifling additional labour 
required by the general scholar to master the abbreviations, will l^ bestowed 



g; The Table of Contents indicates the charters h There is probably no authority for separat- 

pnnted from the Origrinals iii tlie Earl of Mor- ing Roxburgh as a district, from tlie valley of 

ton's coUection, by the addition o{ Orig. A Teviotdale; yet the separation was convenient, 

few other originals are referred to their various and it has been followed thrnughout. It will 

sources. The addition of Reffist. vetust. refers be observed, that Carrie, of old, included much 

to the chartulary in the Adrocate's Library: of what is now called Galloway, and that con- 

Regist. recent. to the Harleian JIS. siderable confusion arises from the great e.\tent 

of that Earldom in other directions. 



■willingly, when it is considered that their adoption saves him, in a vast multi- 
tude of instances, from the fallible conjectures of an editor, and places before 
him the very fac-simile of the original writ. 

It may be thought somewhat at variance with this strict representation of the 
original documents, that the early deeds, which are printed at length in the pre- 
vious part of the work, are not reprinted when they are recited in later charters '. 
The original deeds which still exist undefaced, whatever additional force in evi- 
dence they might receive from subsequent confirmations, could not acquire 
either fresh interest or more authentlcity from these comparatively recent 
transcripts. 

Where, as in most cases, contemporary, or at least very ancient endorsements 
were found on the charters, these have been adopted as titles ; and where either 
chartulary was used, the title prefixed in it to each charter was adopted in 
printing it. Wherc no title was found of any ancient authority, it has been 
thought propcr to supply one ; and this liberty, wliich is but of rare occurrence, 
can be detected by the supplied titles being printed without abbreviations. 

The hst of the plates sufficiently explains their subjects. A great number 
of the seals remain still unengraved. There are very perfect impressions of most 
of the Great Seals from the time of WiUiam the Lion, none of which have 
been here engraved ; partly because Anderson has aiready pubhshed them, 
but chiefly because a complete series of our Royal seals, engraved in a style 
wortliy of modern art, is a desideratum in Scotch History, and cannot be 
supplied from one collection. For the latter reason, not without much hesitation, 
the seals of the family of Douglas have been ahogether oraitted in the plates, 
though many beautiful specimens of them are to be found in this collection. A 
tolerably complete series of the seals of that family, which could be made up 
from this and other charter chests, would not only throw mucii light on Scotch 
heraldry, but would very probably clear up some disputed points, and remove 
some mistakes, in the genealogy of that illustrious house. 

The Appendix consists partly of documents connected witli Melros, though 
not at any time contained in its arcliives, and partly of chartei's which, thougb 



Froni N. 5\o, dowiiwards 



be inserted in their proper places. A few deeds '' have been placed there, 
only because the Editor has been unable to assign dates to them with tolerable 
precision '•*■. 

In preparing and passing through the press such a mass of ancient documents, 
it is inipossible but that many errors should have been committed. In the ar- 
rangement, especially with regard to the dates of the charters, after every test 
has been applied, there is often room for difference of opinion. It is sufficient 
to say that none have been placed without much consideration. The grounds 
on which dates have been assigned to the most doubtful have been preserved, 
but it has not been thought proper to encumber this work with those lucu- 
brations of the compiler ; neither has, it been thought necessary to enumerate a 
few minute literal errors of the press. Where an error occurs, by which the sense 
is injured or rendered doubtful, it has been corrected in the iist of errata. 

Tlie materials thus brought together, forming as they do the finest col- 
lection of ancient writs preserved in Scotland, comprising more than a liundred 
royal charters from David I. down to Robert the Bruce, must be regarded 
with interest by every intelligent student of Scotcli liistory. The reader wlio 
brings to their perusal the temperate curiosity that seeks only for information re- 
garding the history, laws, and arts of our forefathers, may not sympathise with 
the entliusiasm felt by the zealous antiquary on the first excavation of such a 
treasure ; but there is much to repay the patient investigation of the severer 
student, while the more laborious trifler in the curiosities of antiquity cannot fail 
to find material of infinite speculation in these records of the administration of 
raonkish property from the days of Saint David. 

Upon tlie interesting subject of our ancient laws and forms of legal procedure, 
a coUection of authentic writs like the present, is calculated to throw more light 
than the law compilations of a later date, which, although soon adopted by 
Scotch lawyers, can only rank as transcripts or modifications of the writings of 
English jurists. 

We find from the sure authorities now publislied, tliat so early at least as 

A- N. 25, 26, 27, 28. of Aiulersfin's niaterial.e, the original has disap- 

peared. The orii^inal of N. 2 was found in tlie 

kk N. 1 of the Appendix, which is reprinted Register Hoiise at Ediiiburgh, after a copy ot 
from Anderson, is a duplicate of the first char- tlie sanie charter had been printed fiom the 
ter of this collection. Along with many others older chartulaiy, N. 2(jl. 



the reign of Malcolra IV. the Crown was held to be the origin of all real pro- 
perty. Royal confirmations occur so frequently after that period, that we 
cannot avoid the conclusion that they were considered necessary for the com- 
pleteness of titles. It would be more difficult to find a reason for the repeated 
confirmation of crown charters by successive Sovereigns, to the same individual 
or to bodies corporate. That practice however, was not pecuUar to the early 
ages illustrated by the present collection, but extended do\vn to a recent period 
in the conveyancing of Scotland. In the first reigns of the present collection, we 
find a niore complete and intricate structure of feudal tenures, with all their ac- 
companying services and other peculiarities, tlian might be expected at so early 
a period. It was not merely that the lord of a great territory portioned it out 
among his followers and retainers, though that must have been the rude coni- 
mencement of the system ; but already in the reign of WiUiam the Lion, we find 
persons holding lands of their equals, and even of their inferiors in rank, by the feu- 
dal tenure, and subject to thefeudal services of vassalage '. There are numerous 
instances too, of repeated sub-infeudations of lands, where each person held of 
his subject superior, up to the last who held immediately of the Crown ">. We 
have, in like manner, all the nice specifications and distinctions of feudal service 
that occur in the conveyancing both of England and Scotland of a later period ». 



/Thus Walter the High Steward holds of 
De Vesci, N. Ut, 296. 

m Thus Helen de Lindesay held of her father, 
who again held of PoUock, and he of Jlaule- 
verer, who grants a coufirmation to the rcal 
proprietor, and who probal)ly held immediate- 
ly of the crown, N. 140. In like manner, Mel- 
ros held a plough of land in Maxton of Thomas 
de NormanvUl, who held it under his brother 
Guy. Guy's immediate superior was his bro- 
ther Walran, who held of the eldest brother, 
.John de NormanvUl ; the reddendo being a 
pair of gilt spurs payable to the immediate su- 
perior, and a tercel, capilali domino fevdi, N. 
33S— 41. 

n The Abbey had a grant of land in Clifton 
" liberam ah omnibus au.riliis, placiiis, interro- 
" gaiis, geUlis, assisis, scuiagiis, cornagiis, et 
" ah cinni seri^itio et consueiudine ei exactione 
" seculari," N. 116. Alexander II. exempts 
the possessions of Melros in Berwick de omni- 
bus gildis, assisis, auxiliis, colieciis, placitis, 
querelis, murdris, ioloneis, passagiis, pontagiis, 
mnragiis, fassagiis, siallagiis, lasiagiis, de om- 
ni them et tala omniifue ierreno serviiio, exac- 
iione seculati et servitio servili, N. 366. Ro- 



bert de Kent grants land in Innerwic, and 
guarantees it free de forensi servitio et omiii 
terreno serviiio versus dominum Regem et om- 
nes alios dominns nostros, — expressions which 
are perhaps trarislated in the Tenendas claiise of 
the charter, — liheram ah omni servitio et de 
inware et de utware. The Reddeudo is a merk 
of sUver de recognitione, N. 59. The sanie 
services iu a later charter are stiled servitium 
extrinsecuvi et inirinsecum, N. 260. Alexander 
II. grants to the monastery the landsof Bruns- 
chet and Dergavel, under burden of performing 
" forinsecum servitium in auxiliis ianium quan- 
" tum pertinet ad quartam. yariem milifis," whiie 
it is freed " de exercitu ei omni alio forinseco 
" servitio," N. 207. WUliam Grenlaw, for cer- 
tahilands in Halsington held ofDeMuscamp, 
who held under the Earl of Dunbar, is bound 
to pay " servitium quantuvi periinet ad tricesi- 
" mam pariem servilii unius militi,i in forinseco 
" serviiio domini Jtegis cum illud ucciderit," 
and is to be free " a multura, varda casielli et 
a sequela omnium placiiorum," and from all 
other service, aid, custom, tax, and claim, N. 
233. In a later charter, the monks are bound 
to pay " vicesimam parieni serviiii unius militis 
" quando covimuTie serviiium exigitur per foium 
" regnum Scotie," N. 330. It may be conjec- 



Tlie complexity and technical art which mark the law proceedings of so earlv 
a period of our history, might be thought to speak a great degree of refine- 
ment, if we did not find that the progress of civilization tends in all countries to 
siraplify the forms of pleading. JMany of the legal proceedings recorded in the 
present work are very curious, and some will be found of important service to the 
student of the antiquities of our law ». It appears that almost from the earliest 
period of thesc records, the Roman or Civil Law was considered the common law 
of Scotland, wMle from tinie to time we find a native or imported customary 
law gaining ground, which claims a difFerent parentage P. The English form of 
proceeding by brieves of inquisition seems to have been established before the 
reign of James I. ? ; but in the two previous reigns, there occur records of pro- 
ceedings that it is difficult to ascribe to any settled form of practice '. 



tiired that the mlnque miUles of the great Stew. 
ard of ScoUaiid (N. 57, «1, &c.) and the miles 
Archilmldi de Uouirlas (X. '238,) niay have 
acquired that title ironi discbarsing the inili- 
tary ser\-ice diie frmn Iheir lord's land. Tlie 
Stewards held their lands and hereditary oflBce 
— ^'jiieiendo servilinni qninque milituni," (Ile~ 
gisi. de Pa.iselet, Aff \.) It is niore difiicult to 
account for the style of" Miles Regis," which 
so frequently occurs in old charters. 

The elusory duLies in the Reddendo desigiied 
only to inark dependencyj are frequently a 
poimd of pepper or cuniin, a quantity of was, 
a candle, a pair nf spurs, a pair of gloves, {n/ro- 
thecas alhas, N. 260) a falcon, or a nest of 
hawks. 

In 1208 we find a minute record, on papal 
authority, of a keenly contested law suit be- 
t«een the Earl of Dunbar and the monks of 
Jlelros, regarding the pasturage of Wedale. 
The Earl had formerly decUned the jiu-isdiction 
of the papal commissioners, his exception beiiig 
fenced with three pleas in lavv — " valluta 
" tripiici ratione, scilicet obtentu persone, quia 
" laicusj respectu rei, quia crat laicum tene- 
** mentum ; Juris communis heneJi»io, eo quod 
" nclor sequi debeat jhrum rei." He afterwards 
objected to the judges on personal grounds, 
and having three timcs carried his suit to Rome, 
it is at last settled in the court of the King, 
" ia plena euria dumini Regis," N. 101. 

p In the reign of SViiliam, it appears to have 
been still competent to bequeath heritage by 
testament. Elena de Jlorevil, the widow of 
Roland of GaUoway, gives certain property to 
Melros, in exchange for lands which her bro- 



ther William de Morevil had bequeathed to 

the nionastery in his last will, " dieisit eis in 
" ultima sua voluntate," N. 82 — 3. In the next 
reigu again, the King charges his sherifTs to 
prosecute the causes of the mouks of Melros 
like the sovereigns owu causes, " appellationes 
" et responsiones secundum geuus causce facien- 
" tes, et pug-naiorem siforte opusjuerit ex parte 
" jiostra eisdem iuvenientes", N. 175. During 
the reign of Alexander III., we find the Stew- 
ard granting tlie convent powcr to hold courts 
in their Ayrshire domains, with all the pri- 
vileges of his own court of Prestwick; to 
take a venue — visnctum capere, for trial of 
causes ; and abandoning to them all right to 
the chattels of the condemned, and of the party 
slain in duel where duel has been adjudged iii 
any causc, N. 325. 

q N. 525 and 526 are examples of the forms 
of proceeding by a great assize under a brieve 
of departition, proceediiig from the King's cha- 
pel or chancery ; aiid X. 545 gives the proceed- 
ings of an inquest under a Lord of Regality 
iipon a brieve of " purale of merchis" or per- 
ambulation. 

r For example, on the petition of the Con- 
veiit, Archibald of Douglas, Lord of Galloway, 
sitting in judgment " in pleno itinere" at Dum- 
fries, deniands of the Barons of the country there 
standiiig by, whether they had any thing to 
allege against the privileges granted to Melros 
in a royal charter there jiroduced: — " Quorum 
" baronum pro majori parte loiius patrie audi- 
" entium vna pars dictam lihcrtatem cis conees- 
" sam approhuvil, et reliqua purs circnmstantium 
" non negavit ;" upon which the Lord of Gal- 



That a definite and fixed jurisprudence prevailed over the rest of Scotland in 
the reign of WiUiam, is in some degree established by the frequent allusion to 
tbe peculiar customary laws of one province. The province of Galloway, of 
much greater extent than tlie distriet now so called, comprehending a part 
of Dumfries-siiire and all the Earldom of Carric, which extended much farther 
northward than the modern Bailiary of that name *, had but recently been 
reduced to an imperfect subjection to the Crown of Scotland, and was still in a 
state of comparative barbarism '. A series of cbarters ascertains the genealogy 
of the great lords of Galloway from son to father up to Fergus, never however 
passing beyond that ancestor ". From these, and from the names of places and 
of witnesses occurring in charters of other persons in that province, it appears 
that the body of the people, most of the proprietors of the soil, and even the 
lords of the country, were of Gaelic race and language. The original popida- 
tion must have been more strenuous or more successful in vindicating their rights 
than the inhabitants of the otlier districts of Scotland. The Norman settlers 
seem to have obtained a more insecure footing there than elsewhere, and after 
two or three generations they disappear, while in the rude patronymic designa- 
tions of the native inhabitants may be traced the original of families that after- 
wards rose to power and distinction ^. 

Of the pecuHar laws of Galloway we have here unfortunately only a reference 
to certain arrangements for facilitating the arrest of criminals, rendered necessary 
by tlie disturbed state of the province y. Nor does any other source furnish us 
with much information on this subject. We find in our ancient statutes allusions 
to the reservation of the Galwegian customary laws ; but nearly all we can gather 

loway declares, " ex quo vos nichil habetis in n N. 29, et seq. The names are Fergus, Gil- 

" contrarium proponendum, nec ego quicquid lebrid, Duiican, Malcolm, &c. Some of the

Galloway, N. 193-4-5, and the lands of Largs 

were in tlie Earldom of Carric, N. 351. x The family of De Scalebroc and its descen- 

dants illustrate the fornier remark ; the occur- 

t Even so late as in 1223, the monks of VaJlis rence of JFKenedy or Kenedy, Senescal of

of their peculiar nature is drawn from a passage in the treatise of Quoniam 
attachiamenta =, from which it appears they were considered inexpedient or 
prejudicial to society, and that trial by Jury was not one of the rights of the 
inhabitants, since it was declared, that any Galwegian claiming that privi- 
lege should, in the first placc, renounce his right to the customary laws of 
Galloway. 

A still more interesting object of enquiry is to collect from such materials as 
the present coUection affbrds, sonie knowledge of the state'of the country and 
the condition of its population, at a period of which we have so few authentic 
sources of information. The district in which the Abbey of Melros is situated, 
and in which its early possessions chiefly lay, being so near the English border, 
was, after the accession of Malcolm III., quickly occupied in great measure by 
Saxon or Norman settlers. The subdivision of property, when these documents 
first affbrd hght on the subject, was much greater than is consistent with the idea 
coramonly entertained of the overgrown power of the leading nobles and the de- 
graded situation of the other classes ; and the minute portions in which gifts to 
the Abbey were frequently bestowed, seem to shew the value, and probably the 
high cultivation, of that now fertile valley. The original inhabitants had either 
removed to districts not yet coveted by tlie Southern colonists, or were reduced 
to the condition of serfs, then appropriately styled Nativi, who were transferred 
by sale or gift along the soil which they cultivated °. Great attention was un- 
doubtedly bestowed on agriculture, with whatever skill or success, We find 
every where strict rules for the protection of growing corn and hay meadows ''. 
Wheat was cultivated, and wheaten bread used on holidays ''. Roads appear to 
have been frequent '^, and wheel carriages of different sorts in general use ". A

right of way through an adjoining territory was purchased at a considerable 
price, or made the subject of formal contract or donation/. Mills driven by 
water as well as wind-mills, were used for grinding corn S, although it is well 
known that the rude and laborious process of the haud-mill kept its ground in 
some districts of Scotland undl comparatively a recent period. In tlie reign of 
Alexander II., Meh-os acquired the right of turning a stream that bounded their 
lands of Beleside in East Lothian, on account of the frequent injury done by it 
to the hay meadows and the growing corn of the Abbey *. One circumstance 
serves to mark still more tlie progress of agriculture. We find, that so early as 
the reiga of Alexander II., the attention of some of the great proprietors bad 
been directed to rearing and improving the breed of horses. Roger Avenel, the 
lord of Eskdale, had a stud ' in that valley, and Patrick Earl of Dunbar, in pre- 
paration as it would appear for his departure for the Holy Land, in 1247 sold 
to the Abbey his stud in Lauderdale for the considerable sum of a liundred 
merks Sterling *. The monks of May had a grant of land from John fitz 
Michael, (the ancestor it is said of the family of Wemyss), with pasture for a 
certain number of sheep and cows, and for twenty brood mares with their fol- 
lowers K 

From tlie nature of the country, and perhaps from the imperfect state of agri- 
culture, the revenues of the Abbey were chiefly derived from the pasturage of 
cattle and sheep. Of the latter there appears to have been a much greater num- 
ber than lias been hitherto beheved '" ; and the minute and carefid arrangements 
for their folds, their attendants, and the separation of their pastures, show how 
early the attention to this kind of stock commenced in the district which is novv 
distinguished by the perfection to which it has arrived. The high value set upon 
pasturage, whether for sheep or cattle, is shown by its frequent clashing with the 
rights of game and the forest, and by the strict prohibitions against tillage within 

carriages, is shown by a charter of Homeden, h N. 221.

the bounds of forests and pasture ranges ", although this arose in a great measure 
from anxiety to preserve the solitude and quiet necessary for the encouragement 
of all game, and especially the Red Dcer. It may be gathered also from the 
high penalties for allowing cattle or sheep to trespass on neighbouring pas- 
tures ". 

A remarliable custom which recelved the Royal sanction in the reign of Alex- 
ander III., appears somewhat at variance with this jealous care of the rights of 
pasture. That monarch declared it was of use by ancient custom and the com- 
mon law throughout Scotland, that travellers passing through the country might 
quarter for one night in any estate {feudum) and there pasture their beasts, — 
saving only growing corns and hay v. 

The use of the woYAJbrest, in charter language to express a range having cer- 
tain legal privileges for the preservation of game, has contributed to the common 
belief that all Scotland was anciently thickly covered with wood. If it ever were 
so, it must have been at a time before all record ; and in a country where tradition 
has been so much based on the fables of historians, the proof of such an assertion 
must be looked for in the observations of the geologist, which have not hitherto 
tended to confirm this opinion. At the earliest period illustrated by the present 
collection there is sufficient evidcnce that the southern division of Scotland was 
not a well wooded country. On the contrary, the right of cutting wood was 
carefully reserved when pasturage or arable land was granted ; and when that right 
was conceded for some particular purpose, such as for fuel for a salt work, or for 
building, the use was limited in express terms ?. The high grounds of Ayrshire 

vil, and her son Roland of Galloway, gave to Richard de Morevil the Great Constable, and 

the Abbey pasturage for 700 ewes with their his son William, grant to the monks a site in 

followers of two years, or as many wedders ; Wedale for a cow-house or sheep-fold, — vac- 

for 49 cows with their followers of two years, caria seu bercharia, — for one house in which 

a bull, 40 oxen, 8 horses, and 4 swine, with they may light a fire for the brethfen and their 

their followers of three years ; to be fed along shepherds, and for a hay-shed, all within the

" manuali opere," N. 76. In like manner Aiiselm de Whittun, along with certain lands 



may be an exception, where there seems to have existed an extensive forest ; but 
elsewhere, ■wood was a scarce and valuable commodity. Peats formed the com- 
mon fuel of the country, and a right to a peatary was of great importance. 
Even at Preston, now so surrounded by coal mines, wood was used as fuel for 
the salt pans. Coal is not mentioned in this collection of the transactions of 
Melros till the reign of Robert II. "■. It was undoubtedly worked at an early 
period in Scotland, but probably only in the easiest levels and in small quanti- 
ties, from the imperfection of machinery and engineering ; and its use must have 
been confined to a narrow circle from the difficulty of carriage. 

The preservation of game, and the whole economy of the forest, were necessa- 
rily of prominent importance in an age when the. time of the free-born was 
divided between war and the chase. The lands of Melros, both on the eastern 
Border and in A^Tshire, were bounded on all sides by the territories of great 
lords, jealous of all encroachment on their rights of forest, and sometimes it 
would seem, attempting to counteract the former munificence of themselves or 
their ancestors, which had lavished on the favourite religious house rights of 
game as well as all other property. Hence originated many of the disputes 
and subsequent reconciliations recorded in this collection. At first perhaps, 
only the occasional trespassing of the cattle and sheep of the Abbey interfered 
with the pasture or the necessary quiet of the forest game ; but in process of 
time the monks, escaping from the strictness of the Cistercian rule, asserted and 
exercised in their turn rights of game and forest, which they defended against 
encroachment with all the machinery which the law then put in their power. 

When the Abbey acquired that wide territory in Eskdale which was the gift 
of King David I. to the family of Avenel, the game was carefully reserved by 
the successive granters in such express terms that even the names of the valued 
animals are specified. The lords of Avenel reserved hart and hind, boar and 
roe, the aeries of falcons and tercels, and their right to the penalties of trespasses 

and a peat moss, gives to the Abbey as much Melros atid Richard de IMorevil, while the lat-

within the forest, and the amercements of those convicted of theft. Thc monks 
were expressly excluded from hunting with hounds or nets, from setting traps, 
except only for wolves, and from taking the aeries of hawks. Even the trees in 
which the hawks usually built were to be held sacred, and those in which they 
had built one year were on no account to be felled donec in anno jiroximo per- 
pmdatur si in iUis arboribus velint aeriare vel non *. 

The early grants to Melros of their great territories in Ayrshire by the succes- 
sive Stewards, expressed the same reservation in fewer terms : " hoc solo excepto 
" quod monachi ncc conversi nec uliqui alii illorum auctoritate venabuntur nec 
" accipitres capient in eadem Jhresta : Jwc enim illorum ordini non convenit nec 
" iUis credimus expcdire ,-" ' — " salva eademjbresta mea tantum in bestiis et avi- 
" bus.'" " But notwithstanding this reservation, grounded on the rigid rule 
of the Cistercians, we find the monks soon after in fuU possession of the rights of 
game and the forest, in the territory of Machlyn, which their munificent bene- 
factors had at first withheld ; and a few generations later, the family of Graham, 
who inherited the possessions of Avenel, gave up in like manner to Meiros the whole 
privileges of hunting, fishing, and hawking in Eskdale, which had becn originallv 
so jealously guarded ". Even the cognizance of oiFences committed within the 
forest bounds was devolved on the monks ; and it was only provided that male- 
factors condemned to death in the court of the Abbey should be executed at tht- 
place of doomi', and by the bailie, of the temporal lords of the manor. 

The ancient names and boundaries of lands are chiefly interesting to those 
locally connected with the district, but many of the mefes so minutely described 
in these venerable evidences are of general curiosity, and if still to be traced in 
the names or in the features of the country, may throw light on the early 
language and other interesting antiquities, as well as on the ancient condition 
and extent of property. So early as the Reign of William the Lion, boundaries

are found marked by such objects as " the old elm =, " oaks on which crosses 
" were made °," " the white thorn *," " the green ditch V' " the ozier bed "^," 
" the crosses and trenches made by King David «." It is not to be hoped that 
many of these marks and memorials should have escaped the ravages of time and 
the plough. Some however may still remain even of this more perishable de- 
scription ; and fortunately a more enduring sort of boundary marks will 
serve in many districts to illustrate the state of property as it existed six centuries 
ago. The rivers and lakes forming the natural divisions of the country can be 
recognized without difficulty in the slight variation from their modern names. 
Fountains and springs, the summits of the hills, and the highest levels of the 
moorlands/, " sicut descoisus aquarum dividunf are in most cases not to be 
mistaken, although the present names of the hills on the Southern Border are 
mostly of unaccountably modern origin, while their older appellations in thechar- 
ters have, it is believed, disappeared S. Another class of metes occurring in these 
charters cannot escape notice. They point to monuments of antiquity far be- 
yond the records or the foundation of the Abbey, but no expression of the par- 
ties shows the slightest knowledge or interest concerning their origin. A charter 
of Elena de Moreuil in tlie reign of WilHam, gives for one of its bounding marks 
" the ancient castle *," probably one of those mountain forts of unknown history, 
antiquity, and use, which are thickly scattered over the pastoral hills of the bor- 
ders. Anselm of Molle gives land in that territory bounded at one point " per 
" quosdam magnos lapides veteris edificli quod est super umim parvum cundos '." 
The great Roman ways which intersect the district are frequent boundaries in 
the more ancient charters ; at least these seem to be tlie roads described under 
the various names of " Derestrete '^," " Herdstrete '," " Magna strata ""," " the

The practice whicli we find to liave prevailcd in the earliest periods of this 
record, of setting up great stones, and sometimes stone crosses, to mark the boun- 
daries of adjoining territories, may account for some of those monuments which 
have long exercised the ingenuity of antiquaries l>. In other instances, such 
monuments of past ages as were conveniently situated were adopted as boundary 
niarks, instead of constructing new marks ?. These are frequently designated by 
the name which is still the popular term in Scotland for such monuments of un- 
known or conjectural use, " the standing stones." 

The occurrence of early examples of the spoken language, which must interest 
the philologist in all countries, is more than usually interesting in Scotland, whose 
original inhabitants and successive invaders have afforded such abundant matter 
of controversy. It has ah-eady been noticed, that there are in the present collec- 
tion indications of the language and people of Galloway. With the exception of 
that province, there is no reason to believe that a Celtic language was in use in 
any district with which the Abbey of Melros was connected during the period 
embraced by tliis Chartulary. It will be found that the great benefactors of the 
Abbey, with the exception of the Lords of Galloway, and the great Earls of 
Dunbar, were of Norman descent and name. Several persons occur of Saxon 
families, and others whom we may conjecture to be of Uanish or Norse origin ; 
but with the exceptions above stated, no cliarters are granted by persons whom 
there is any reason to beheve of Celtic race. Most of the Norman settlers had 
either previously fixed seignorial surnamcs "■, or soon assumed local designations 
from the territories acquired by them in Scotland *. The Saxon and Norse

colonists, being perhaps usually of inferior rank and po-wer, remained longer 
without that which soon became a badge of gentility. From them were named 
most of the places which bear the Saxon termination of town, and these, by 
a curious ahernation, in a short time afiTorded surnames to their proprietors ', 
when the fashion of territorial surnames became almost universal. 

The names of places occurring in these charters, excepting those of Gallo- 
way, are for the most part purely Saxon. It may be, tliat the great features of 
the country, its mountains, valleys, and rivers, bore Celtic names. Very few of 
these occur. The names of estates however, and their boundaries, coeval with 
the dawn of civihzation, wherever indicating any meaning, were all Saxon " ; and 
the few words of early vernacular language, thinly scattered over the older docu- 
ments of tliis coUection, all show the same origin ^, and leave no doubt that a

these in tum were assumed as the territorial 
surnames of well known families. A person- 
age who figures iu the early charters, Maccus, 
chose to call his town by its Normau term, and 
" ]\Iaccus-vU" (which is raerely another shape 
of Maccustun or Maxton) iu time passed into 
the familiar surname of jlaxwell. The name 
of this famUy has of late inidergone the same 
combination which was applied some centuries 
ago to its founder's own name, and by this 
triple process we arrive at the name of Max- 
welltown.

Saxon dialect was tlie universal spoken language of Lothian, Merse, and Teviot- 
dale, from the time of David I. 

The Court French afterwards imported by the English Edwards, and which 
continued so long to be the law language of England, never gained much ground 
in Scotland ; and although doubtless used exclusively by the English settlers of 
that disturbed period y, it seems not to have long survived their departure, 
when Latin again became the universal language of business, as it continued 
to be down to the end of the fourteenth century. About that period, the verna- 
cular Saxon, the spoken language of the lowlands of Scotland, began to be used 
in deeds, and instances of it occur in tliis collection, of the reign of Robert II. 
One of these * is dated in 1389, and although much of its interest is destroyed 
by the closeness of its translation from a Latin style, yet it is of some value as a 
genuine specimen of early Scotch. 

The transactions serving to show the relative value of money and other com- 
modities in Scotland, and tlie interest taken for money, at an early period, are 
unfortunately very rare. 

In 1256, the Earl of Carric sells an annual rent from land of three merks, for 
the sum of 40 merks, or thirteen years purchase °. 

In the same century and reign, the Abbey purchases up a rent charge of 
thirty shillings, by a payment of 30 merks and40 pence, or a little more than 13 
years purchase *. 

We find a charter of king Alexander II., confirming the sale of a half plough 
of land in Edenham with two hurgagm (probably the portions of land necessary 
to qualify burgesses) in Berwic, at the price of =f 33. 6*. 8d. sterling <=.

the patronage of the church, redeemable by him or the heirs of his body, for 40

romantic tradition of the mighty power which they wielded on the Borders. 
The proverbial instability of Scotch affairs for three centuries preceding the 
union of the Crowns, was generally unfavourable to the continued descent of 
hereditary possessions ; but on the Borders, wars, feuds and forfeitures foliowed 
cach other so fast, that no families proved sufficiently vigorous to take root and 
grow to grandeur. 

The alliances, descents and transactions of many of those extinct families, and 
still more those of the ilkistrious house of Stewart are however essential to the 
history of a country where they played so important a part ; and some of the 
existing families of Scotland can still boast a connexion with even the most an- 
cient of those illustrious and historical names ^- 

The numerous seals preserved in tliis collection are not only interesting to the 
herald, but often furnish important information of the owner's real style and title, 
when the charter happens to set forth only Iiis familiar or patronymic appella- 
tion ', and enable us todistinguish between several persons of the same patronymic 
name ". It is scarcely necessary to notice that they at the same time serve to 
mark the state of the arts of the country, and are in Scotland almost our only 
guides in tracing the arms and dress of a remote period. 

Tlie use of seals is almost coeval in this country wit.h the use of writing. 
Only two or three genuine ancient writs are known, wliicli exhibit a different 
mode of authentication ", and we have little reason to believe, that there werc

Richard de Mawkerstoi, are proved by their ham. 
seals to have already adopted the analogous 



any writings connected with land in Scotland, of an earlier date than some of 
those which are still extant. 

Before the universal adoption of arras, a star, a flower, a wheel, or such other 
common device, rudely graved on the middle of the seal, served to give room 
round the edge for the owner''^ name. In some instances, seals bear what seems 
to have been a badge or cognizance of an individual, a family, or a district. 
Family and personal badges were not unfrequently assumed in allusion to the 
names of those who bore them ", but whether adopted on this or other grounds, 
they either became part of the heraldic blazon, or continued to ornament the 
arms after the introduction of a more systematic heraldry ; and in many cases 
suggested the crest and supporters, when these long afterwards came into fashion. 
The introduction of heraldry was in all countries quickly followed by the adop- 
tion of shields of arms, as the appropriate distinction of seals. This cannot be 
said to liave coramenced in Scotland earlier than the reign of William the Lion. 
Even during that reign the practice was by no means general, and some persons 
of great distinction, both Saxon and Norman, though evidently following the 
kiiightly customs of the age, had not yet adopted fixed family arms „. The 
plates of the present work enable us to trace, with tolerable accuracy, the intro- 
duction and perfecting of that simple and pure heraldry which has hitherto dis- 
tinguished Scotland. It will occur, even on a slight examination of these, that 
several of the most ancient seals are of a design and workmanship which cannot 
be ascribed to a rude age. These are undoubtedly antique intaglios on gems, 
whicli were adopted as an ornament for the centre of the seal before heraldic 
bearings were introduced ; and after the introduction of a shield with a charge 
as the mark of the principal seal, were frequently used as a signet and coun- 
terseal 7.

been already suppHed by the Author of the " Monastic Antiquities of Teviotdale,'' 
in as complete a manner as the imperfect materials within his reach allowed. 
They cannot be treated satisfactorily until the records of the iieighbouring monas- 
teries of Kelso, Dryburgh and Jedburgh, as well as many other public and 
private collections have been diligently explored. The property of these grcat 
religious houses lay so intermixed, and the transactions between tliem were so 
numerous, that the evidences regarding each throw light on the possessions and 
condition of the others ; and so close was their connexion that a custom was long 
established tliat any difference occurring between two of them was settled by 
the arbitration of the other two •■. After the most dihgent enquiry it may not 
now be possible fuUy to satisfy curiosity regarding the extent, situation, vahic, 
and niode of acquisition of the property of the monasteries of Teviotdale. 
The taste for such studies, though so necessary as the ground-vvork of statis- 
tics, has arisen too late in Scotland to entitle us to expect the fuUness and accu- 
racy of local history, that lend such a charming interest to every county and 
almost each parish of England. The materials still existing are not however 
so scanty as some have imagined ', and, if properly explored and turned to this .

interest of accuratc history and local anecdote to that beautiful district, which is 
aiready so rich in tlie associations of poetry and romance. 

But, although it is as the great land-owner that we now regard Melros as of 
so much importance to the statistics and the history of its district, there was 
anotlier relation in which it perhaps affected the happiness of the people as 
much, and which was the source of a large part of its revenue. Like other 
Monasteries, tlie Abbey of Melros soon acquired property in parochial 
churches with their lands and tithes, which the lay Lords wjio could not re- 
tain them in tiieir own hands, granted to the Monks, sometimes simply in 
proprhs usus ', and sometimes ad susceptionem paupervm et pereg-rinortm ad 
domum de Melros venientium " ,- and aniong these cliarters are to be found many 



of the revenues and expenses of the Commen- 
dators of llelros from 1556 dowiiwards. The 
first of these, framed during the incunnbency of 
.lanies the natural son of King James V., who 
held the Abbacies of JMelros and Kelso in coni' 
mendam, presents the following abstract of the 
rental of Melros, which is certainly of higher 
authority than those of later date, which were 
mostly prepared for regiilatiiig the proportion 
payable to the Crown and the Clergy under 
the Act for the taxation of benefices — 1561. 

In forming an estiniate from this abstract, of 
the ancient reren\ieof Jlelros, it is necessary to 
take nito account the rapid progress for some 
time previous of alienations of Church lands 
for an elusory rent or price, aiid the leases of 
tilhes granted by the successive Alibots to 
friendly tenants. It appears too, that the great 
Ayrshire property of the Abbey does not enter 
iiito this or any other account that has been 
preserved.

curious particulars iliustradng the twofold capaciiy of the Monks as landowners 
aiid as rectors, while facts are incidentally mentioned which throw light upon 
the circumstances of the secular as well as of the regular clergy. As land- 
owners, the Monks were always desirous of evading ihe delivery of tithes in iiind, 
which seems to have been peculiarly odious to a body of ecclesiastics capable of 
performing divine offices, and fortified with various Papal immunities. In one 
instance we find them yielding only to superior force ' ; and in other parishes in 
wliicli they had large estates, they were at length successful in estabhshing under 
the sanction of the Bishop, the King, and the Pope, a fixed composition, instead 
of a demand for tithes varying according to tlie crop, the value of the currenc}-, 
and perhaps the temper and disposition of the Rector. When they were about 
to demise to tenants the lands of Kyle given to them by the Steward, and thereby 
to give up tlieir immunity from the payment of tithe, they had the lands erected 
iiito a distinct parish of Machline, of which the Rectory vested in themselves ; 
cautiously providing, that if at any future time they should think fit to take the 
lands into their own liands, they should be freed from the burden of maintainino- 
tlie church and pensioning the vicar 2'. 

The amount of the Vicar's pension seems to have depended on circumstauces 
wliich we cannot now perhaps ascertain •. It appears to have been paid unwil- 
lingly, and in sonie cases was, with the permission of the Rector, entirely withheld. 
But if the Vicars of the richly endowed Regulars were only scantily and grudg- 
ingly maintained by their wealthy patrons, it is evident that from the earhest 
times the secular Rectors were often men of wealth and family. Some of them were 
the younger sons of great houses «, and we find in more than one instance, clergy- 
men possessed of considerable landed property ; and one instance occurs in the 
eaily part of our records, of the Parson of a parish transmitting his estate to his 
daughter, probably of a legitimate marriage *. 

Without underrating the effects of the reformation of religion, it may be safely 
said, that no revolution in politics or opinions can have produced such a chano-e 
in the structure of society as the emancipation of the Clergy from cehbacy, and 
the sudden destruction of the monastic societies. It is now difficult, perhaps

impossible, to separate in our miiuls the overthrow of these inslitutions from the 
change of creed and opinion that incidentally, not necessarily, produced it ; and it 
is even yet rare to find the freedom from passion and prejudice necessary for 
forming a correct estimate of the good and evil arisiiig from that part of the great 
change of the Reformation. 

Tiie Friars were tlie chief objects of serious attack and lighter satire at the 
commencement of the Reformation. Tiiey have left fewer monuments by wliich 
we may judge of the juslice of the odium ; but as regards the Monks, we have 
abundant information from the records and relics they have left behind them. 
We may not be disposed to apply to Melros the exaggerated eulogium be- 
stowed by a partial historian on its venerable founder = ; but upon a fair estimate 
of the materials submitted to us, we shall find the Monks, freed as they wcre 
from domestic ties, always zealous for their order, and for the welfare of their 
territories and tenants as conducing to its prosperity ; encouraging agriculture and 
every improvement of the soil ; leading the way in an adventurous foreign trade, 
and in all arts and manufactures ; cultivating the learning of tlie time (''<■', and 
latterly enjoying and teaching to others the enjoyment of the liixuries of civilized 
life, while they exercised extensive hospitahty and charity, and preserved a 
decorum which is akin to virtue. Posterity owes them a debt, were it but for 
bequeathing us those remains of their edifices which are only more interesting 
from their decay, and for their simple and faithful chronicles. When we con- 
sider the extent of the possessions of a house like Melros, the affluence, and 
the amount of powcr and influence it brought to bear on sucli objects as these,

rule of ihe Order. Their great founder also 



during ages of lawlessness and rapine ; recollecting too the peculiar interest of 
its peaceful and perhaps indolent inhabitants in maintaining the quiet of the 
country and the security of property, we cannot doubt that their administration 
of their great territory and revenue, notwithstanding all abuses incident to the 
system, was more for the happiness of the people than if the possessions of thc 
Abbey had fallen at an early period into the hands of some great temporal 
proprietor. But such speculations would extend beyond our present limits. It 
only remains to point out one or two particulars connected with the public history 
of the country. 

Eustace de Vesci confirms to the Abbey all the lands in his fee of Wittun, 
which it held on the year after Alexander Prince of Scotland rendered homage 
to King John of England, on the morrow of the invention of the Holy Cross 
(4th May.) This homage was not known to our historians. It may be conjec- 
tured to have taken place on the occasion of the Prince receiving knighthood at 
the hands of John in 1212 ; but if this be the case, the date generally assigned 
to that event must be erroneous '^. 

There are few more interesting state papers than the letter of Robert the 
Bruce addressed to his son and his successors «. Not contented with the proofs 
of his piety and regard for Melros which he had ah-eady given in the munificent 
grants for the rcstoration of the building, ruined by continual wars, and for the 
personal comfort of the Monks/, the dying monarch bequeaths tohis son the care 
and protection of that favoured house where he destined his heart to be buried. 
It is remarkable that this document bears date S witliin a monlh of the King's 
death, and it follows that his request to Douglas to convey his heart to the Holy 
Land was made still nearer his end. 

We look now with scarcely less interest to a notice whicli occurs in this collec- 
tion of the first erection of the city of Glasgow. The charter of Bishop Jocelin *, 
as lord superior, confirming to IMelros the jjroperty of a toft guod Raniilfus dc 
Hadlntun cdijkavit in prima edificationc hurgi, indicates very clearly the erec-

tion of thc episcopal burgli, in virtue of a charter granted by King William 
tiie Lion to Bishop Jocelin iiimself'. It is well l<nown that Glasgow, 
straitened on one hand by the more important Royal burgh of Rutherglen, and 
on the other side by Dumbarton and tiie Clyde burghs cluiming a monopoly of 
tlie river trade, continued for a long time a placc of small consideration, deriving 
its only importance from the Bishop's see. Somewhat more than a century after- 
wards, we find tiie " communitas civitalis Glasguensis''' exercising the office of a 
court of inquest for the service of heirs *, and authenticating its writ with the 
seal of the community, whicli would seem to mark a certain degree of indepen- 
dent power. It was not however for more than four centuries and a half ' after 
the first charter and erection of tlie episcopal burgh, tliat the city of Glasgow 
obtained complete emancipation. The rapidity of its subsequent rise in wealth 
and splendour, and in the extent of trade and manufactures, is probably without 
any parallel. 

The incidental mention of the condition of the Abbey it.^^elf at different times, 
strongly illustrates the history of the district and the age. At one time powerful 
and prosperous, accuraulating property, procuring privileges, commanding the 
support of the most powerful, and proudly contending against the shghtest en- 
croachment ; at another, irapoverished and ruined by continual wars ™, obliged to 
seek protection from the foreign invader " ; in either situation it reflects back 
faithfully tlie political condition of the country. 

But the political events of a country of so narrow bounds and small resources 
as Scotland, are insigniiicant unless they are associated with the development of 
principles and feelings that know no limits of place or power. How rich Scot- 
land has been in sucli associations is testified by the general sympathy wliich at- 
tcnds her history and her literature, and gives a pride to her children that forms 
not the weakest safeguard of their virtue. It is in recalling freshly the raemory 
of times in which the proud and virtuous character of lier people was formed, and 
which it is their delight and tl»eir duty to look back upon, that such studies as the 
present are most useful. Every local association, every faint illustration of anti- 
([uity, each indication of the bygone manners of a simple age, are in this view to
